Health crisis part 2

The bleeding started again today.

Called my worthless gyno.

"You've only been on birth control for a week. Breakthrough bleeding is totally normal."

This on the heels of 6 weeks of:

"Most women have some bleeding between periods, it's totally normal." Followed by:

"Oh, you have uterine polyps? Well that's why you're bleeding. Totally normal. It'll stop once we get them out."

and "Oh I know we just took out the polyps, but that was surgery. Everyone bleeds after surgery. Totally normal."

Well, guess what buddy - you're "totally normals" have lead to 7 straight weeks of me bleeding. WHICH IS NOT TOTALLY NORMAL. Nor is me missing my period.

Seriously everyone. I need help and prayers. None of my symptoms have subsided. Some have gotten worse. (Lightheadedness, difficulty eating, constant burping, abdominal pain, burning or continued pain down the legs, blurred vision). I have come to the point of begging for help...

If you can help...

It began as abnormal uterine bleeding over a month ago. A distended belly and pain sent me to the ER with it, where they did a CT scan, and found my cervix was distended. I was referred to my gynecologist, who performed a cervical and uterine polypectomy. Which was supposed to fix me, but hasn't.

I just spent three days in the hospital getting all kinds of tests... I had an abdominal/pelvic MRI and a tube put down into my stomach. Blood tests came back within normal ranges, though some concerning things like thyroid, red blood cell and hemoglobin and iron count were low. I received an iron infusion. My amylase was high.

I continue to bleed, and I have pain in the pelvis which sometimes radiates down my legs and through my arms. The pain in my legs makes me cry and keeps me from sleeping. I have difficulty eating. Most days I feel like I have the flu - hot and cold spells, "the shakes", lightheadedness. The shakes are very, very bad, and have me confined to the bed. I cannot walk for long distances without feeling like I will pass out.

I have passed out several times. Many of these symptoms actually came on prior to the polypectomy, so I don't know that they are or could be surgery related...

My gynecologist says it is not related, and has me on anti anxiety medication because none of the tests showed any indicators of internal causes.

If you know what this could be - if you know where I could go to get relief and healing - please let me know. I am running out of hope...

Today Swype changed "I miss you" to "I miss me"... which may have been exactly what I needed to say...
